There are plenty of wonderful recipes out there that are downright delicious. And then there are those rare treats that rise above “delicious” to some exclusive higher category, officially known as “Food Crack.” Like a drug, you know it counts as food crack when no matter how much you eat, you just can’t get enough, (even when you know it might kill you in the end!)

This recipe, my friends, is Food Crack at its very best.

I got the recipe from my dear friend Debbie who makes dozens of loaves every Christmas to give away to her friends and family. She is well known and much beloved for this effort, so I was, quite frankly, amazed when she agreed to share her special recipe with me so that I could share it with you all.

All she said was, “Food this good needs to be shared.”

Debbie, you rock. And amen to that!
